Outside the Brown Bag - Taking my Kitchen Toys to Work

Found this nice 'T-bone Roast' (which I'd be inclined to call a porterhouse steak) at Metro last week. Brought it sous vided to work and browned it in butter. Ate a few nice slices for my dinner with some steamed flat beans.

Here's what I managed to squeeze in between all those annoying patients who keep interfering with what I'm baking!

wondered if stabbing the loaf would prevent the delamination of the cinnamon raisin bread

tin in foil to prevent darkening should be added later.

At work yesterday I made 'butter quorn' and naan for the gang for lunch - fit in around a whole crap load of patients. Forgot to grab a picture.

 

For my dinner I fried up

some rice. Had enough minutes to take a picture of that.

I'm lucky to find a few minutes to cook - haven't had as much time to post - between flu season and people figuring out what a nice quick ER we are.

Nice drive in this morning - really miserable drive home tonight between rain and pea soup fog.

Nice little pork chop that I sous v'ed yesterday.

Kerry, such a beautiful sunrise, thanks for the photo!

 

Glad you’re eating well at work. What did you do for meals before you brought all your toys in? Are you’re coworkers cooking at work too?

I wasn't working the 24 hour shifts initially - so I would just take what I took. 

 

I think I'm the only one cooking there - but the nurses have used me to convince the paramedic students that they are expected to bake at home and bring it in for them. Some are pretty good at it!

"Kicked up Cornbread" - half the batch. I'll make the other half for my second 12 hours today. 

 

It didn't last long.

When I looked at that post a couple of hours ago, for some reason my eyes saw "ketchup cornbread." This makes a lot more sense. 

 

(Didn't sleep much last night because of strep throat, so I'm a bit loopy)

I made this cornbread today, it's almost cool enough to try!

@Kerry Beal I am constantly amazed at the food you make while at work.  I do have a question about logistics though - what do you do if something comes up in the middle of making something that is time sensitive?  Like, when baking bread (with a bake time of say 45 min.), what happens if an emergency comes in at min. 30?  Do you have someone else to take it out of the oven?

The Cuisinart steam oven turns itself off at the end of the baking time. For the second loaf I baked yesterday - it was about an hour later before I got back to it. Ditto the second cake I baked. Sous vide is really forgiving too. And the Instant Pot has the keep warm.

 

Yesterday was a miserable day in the ER - I went pretty much steady from 8 am to 6 pm with just enough time to run down the room and put the dough together, another trip to knead it, another to shape etc.

What settings and seasonings did you use? Was the final texture tight, or falling apart?
